Hey UUers!

Can you tell Jake Shimabukuro's playing from a kid? This time on Ukulele Challenge, we challenged Abe Lagrimas, Jr., Kalei Gamiao, and Aldrine Guerrero to a blind guess - Jake or Young Kid??

Granted, we made it REALLY, REALLY difficult for them. All of the songs were Jake Shimabukuro arrangements, but some of the Jake videos had less-than-desirable audio quality, and some of the "Young Kid" videos were from some of the best young ukulele players in the world.

Can you tell the difference? Find out!
